Today is the final day of the 2018 Tour de France. This morning is free to explore Paris at your leisure. Take a wander along the Seine, or maybe jump on one of the city bikes, take a ride along the quiet streets of Paris on a Sunday morning. After breakfast you may wish to take a walk along the Champs-Élysées and see the race setting up and the people lining up early to try to get a position on the course. Luckily you will be spared waiting for hours in the sun as you will have the perfect place to view the race today!
Early this afternoon you will be met by a Bikestyle representative who will escort you to the Champs-Élysées to take up your position in the Triomphe area to witness the arrival of the race in style this afternoon. Before the arrival of the main event you will be able to see the race caravane, and the race will once again have an early evening finish, a spectacular way to end the race in the city of lights.
Your package will include:
Today’s final stage is normally a procession until the entrance onto the Champs-Élysées where the racing really starts. Riders traditionally chat, celebrate the final stage, pose for photographs, drink Champagne, sometimes they even dress-up, swap bikes and generally horse around. Once the race gets into Paris, the Yellow jersey and his team lead the peloton onto the Champs-Élysées for what is a basically a big criterium in the centre of the French Capital.
After the race it’s a tradition for all the riders to do a lap of honour and you’ll be right there to cheer on and applaud your favourite riders as they ride slowly past. Bring along your camera and autograph Sharpie just in case one of your favourite riders happens to stop and say hello. After all the festivities are over the rest of the evening is free for you to explore the delights of Paris.
